Book cover for Eisenhower in War and Peace
The outbreak of war in 1914 made little impact. While the armies of Europe bled to death in front of Passchendaele and in the marshes of East Prussia, West Point’s department of military art concentrated on Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and the ...more

“It is always better to admire the best among our foes rather than the worst among our friends”
Viet Thanh Nguyen, The Sympathizer

Naomi Novik
“He would only shrug and look at me expectantly again, waiting for high magic: magic that came only when you made some larger version of yourself with words and promises, and then stepped inside and somehow grew to fill it.”
Naomi Novik, Spinning Silver

Colum McCann
“The elaborate search for a word, like the turning of a chain handle on a well. Dropping the bucket down the mineshaft of the mind. Taking up empty bucket after empty bucket until, finally, at an unexpected moment, it caught hard and had a sudden weight and she raised the word, then delved down into the emptiness once more.”
Colum McCann, TransAtlantic

Steven Johnson
“In the popular folklore of American history, there is a sense in which the founders’ various achievements in natural philosophy—Franklin’s electrical experiments, Jefferson’s botany—serve as a kind of sanctified extracurricular activity. They were statesmen and political visionaries who just happened to be hobbyists in science, albeit amazingly successful ones. Their great passions were liberty and freedom and democracy; the experiments were a side project. But the Priestley view suggests that the story has it backward. Yes, they were hobbyists and amateurs at natural philosophy, but so were all the great minds of Enlightenment-era science. What they shared was a fundamental belief that the world could change—that it could improve—if the light of reason was allowed to shine upon it.”
Steven Johnson, The Invention of Air

Ray Dalio
“My painful mistakes shifted me from having a perspective of “I know I’m right” to having one of “How do I know I’m right?”
Ray Dalio, Principles: Life and Work
